Any information on the HARTY Family

Query by Rosiet

My Grandparents - Elizabeth Mary HARTY and Edwin Ben VIRKLER were married in July 1908 - I have a photo of their wedding at 122 W. Chalmers Ave. Is there a chance that anyone could get me an UTD photo of the house?
(BTW I did get a copy of their marriage certificate - it was mis-written/filed under the name BIRKLER)

ANY INFORMATION concerning my grandmother's family would be greatly appreciated. I THINK he owned a cigar/smoking store of some sort -
MICHAEL HARTY 1844 - 06-Oct-1894
BRIDGET BENNET HARTY 1845 - 28-Apr-1900 she was a man's tailor

they lived at

643 W. Federal Street / Youngstown, Ohio (a photo would be very appreciated)

I would like any information on what church they would have belonged to before the Cathedral was built - Very Irish Catholic. Their daughter was the first organist at the Cathedral when it was built.
